Pic Special: Newcastle 3 Cardiff 0

Newcastle United returned to winning ways on Saturday with a 3-0 home victory over Cardiff City in the Barclays Premier League.

Goals from Shola Ameobi, Loic Remy and substitute Steven Taylor secured maximum points for the Magpies at St. James' Park, ending a run of six successive defeats in the process.

And it was no more than United deserved for a display in which they dominated for large parts and secured a top-ten top flight finish.

Ameobi nodded home Moussa Sissoko's cross midway through the first half, while Mathieu Debuchy, Sissoko and Remy all went close to extending the advantage.

That finally happened with time running out, as Remy tapped home Cheick Tiote's deflected drive, and substitute Taylor wrapped things up in stoppage time with a close range finish.
